SparkFun Electronics will be closed in observance of memorial day on Monday, May 29th. We will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, May 30th. Any orders placed after 2pm Mountain Time on Friday, May 26th will process and ship out on Tuesday, May 30th.
Another seven days has elapsed since our last round of new products. That means we need to regroup, talk about what’s new, and post up a video. Enjoy.
If you have a shiny new B+, be sure to check out the cases, they’re pretty slick!
We now have the clear cases in stock for the Raspberry Pi B+. This is the same as the black case, with easy access to all the inputs and outputs as well as the GPIO cable, camera header, etc. It even has some little feet on the back, and key-slots for wall-mounting.
This cable is a slightly different variant of our FTDI cables that works well with the Raspberry Pi or other boards that need a simple USB to TTL cable. The cable has a USB on one end and 4 female plugs on the other for TX, RX, VCC and GND. There’s an FTDI FT232 embedded inside.
Need a simple microSD reader for your devices? Check out this simple (and tiny) microSD card reader. It plugs directly into your USB port and has a little lanyard thing on it. More and more devices use microSD, so make sure you always have access to a reader!
Aaaaand, that’s all I’ve got for this week! Thanks for looking, watching, weeping, laughing, and we’ll be back again next week with more new goodies.
